Breaking Report: Fly Model of Leukemia
On my desk today? Osman et al. (2009) A Drosophila model identifies calpains as modulators of the human leukemogenic fusion protein AML1-ETO. In PNAS. PubMed ID 19581587. The authors report a model of AML1-ETO-induced leukemia. Includes results of an in vivo screen using the collection of the National Institute of Genetics (of Japan, I assume). See LINK for information about that fly stock collection.
